June 28 – Many local residents are wondering how they can help with the current firefighting efforts. In that respect, the timing for the Tommy Taylor Replenishment Community Blood Drive couldn’t be better. And there are still slots open today in the afternoon from 2 – 4:30 for walk-ins doors.
Give Blood….For Life!
The Tommy Taylor Replenishment Community Blood Drive is from 1 to 5 p.m. TODAY at the NMHFM banquet room, 117 W. 10th St.
This blood drive is named after Leadville’s Tommy Taylor. In 2007, Tommy survived a terrible car accident, requiring several surgeries and need for many units of blood. This blood drive was established by the Taylor family to help replenish blood centers to help save other lives.
“We were so grateful for the community support we received during that difficult time,” said Bunny Taylor, Tommy’s wife. “Everyone kept asking what they could do to help and this seemed like the best thing we could do.”
If you are not able to give blood at this drive but would like to consider giving at another time, please contact Bunny at firstname.lastname@example.org or for information regarding local blood drives or you may also contact the Bonfils Blood Center at www.bonfils.org. or (800) 365-0006, ext. 2.
